I spotted it growing in a shrubby area bordering a sidewalk on University of Pristina campus. It is not only a beauty, but also a wild food & medicine w/ myriad applications wherever it occurs across the Balkans and Mediterranean #ethnobotany
A Confederate field physician from the Civil War might've shown us the plants we need to fight off medicine-resistant bacteria. Many thanks to @QuaveEthnobot for the great interview! Listen here: https://t.co/oSQ6nNWS5I

Holy tomato!!! I was super impressed by the fresh produce that abounded in the open air market today in Pristina. These vine-ripened tomatoes were both beautiful and tasty!
#FoodiePharmacology peeps - what do you think? Should I do an episode on this fantastic fruit?
Market #botanicals today include the wild cucumber to squirt up your nose for sinus problems, wormwood for medicinal tea, and a charming table-seats-greenwall #Kosovo #ethnobotany Not even in the mountains yet!
We came across a lovely old gentleman selling aromatic plants today during our coffee break walk. He had wild #absinthe, #oregano, #hawthorn, #thyme, #immortell and more! We couldn’t resist stopping to chat with him a bit about his herbal treasure trove :)
Day 2 of microbiology training went great! Really enjoying working with this group of talented students... and our experiments worked! 🧪 🧫 🔬 🌱

You may not care about plants as much as animals, but remember that animals - including us - depend on plants for food, shelter, clothing, medicine, O2, carbon-fixing, etc. This is a BFD.
Perfect book as a companion for rummaging through herbarium with unidentified #orchid specimens in University of Pristina #Kosovo Beginning some exciting fieldwork with @QuaveEthnobot

@QuaveEthnobot Happy Sunday! I just finished listening to this week’s #FoodiePharmacology #podcast Mango The King of Fruit! I’d like to suggest an episode on my favorite, Mangostino, the Queen of Fruit. Safe travels tomorrow.
From diaper changes to doctors visits, teaching them how to tie their shoes & safely use power tools, cheering them on from the sidelines during soccer games, & keeping pace as they prep for races - you’ve been a super dad to our 3 kids the whole way! Happy #FathersDay Marco ❤️

In case you were wondering... this is what #leadership looks like.
Thank you @NIHDirector for taking a stand and setting an example by both action and words.
Ending the #manel begins at the top. Starting now, I expect a level playing field at public speaking events with a diversity of ideas or I will decline to participate. I challenge other leaders to do the same. https://t.co/B0hwwv5ZMw #NIH
Huge congrats to Carol Clark @EmoryUniversity for winning the silver Case Award on Writing for the Web! "Stellar writing & storytelling... The humanity in these stories really comes through, which is always a commendable outcome in science-heavy pieces."

Have you ever planted a tree?
Wangari Maathai founded the green belt movement, which led to the planting of over 50 million trees in Africa. Maathai was awarded the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize, and thus became the first African woman to be awarded the prize.

Plant extinction 'bad news for all species'. Important story

Plant extinction 'bad news for all species'
Almost 600 plant species have been lost from the wild in the last 250 years, according to a study.
New research from @KewScience finds that almost 600 plant species have become extinct,
at a higher rate than background extinction, but almost as many have been wrongly declared extinct & then been rediscovered.

Wilson’s message is as strong as ever: Saving space for non-human life will save humanity.
Today, in a new @NatureEcoEvo paper, Kew Scientists have published the first rigorously researched list of all documented plant extinctions.
